Pieter Gerard van den Broek
Pieter van den Broek, born on may 6 1956, married with his kind wife Greet. They have two daughters Demelza and Tuppence.
Pieter has followed and
rounded off the art of flower arrangement, horticultural school and entrepreneur-ship.
His creative skills and
possibilities he further developed trough his many years of contact with colour
and form during his work as an artist of flower arrangement. From that, he has
created an own style and developed an own formative language.
As a florist he also got assignments to create collages of ‘natural’ materials. From that it was a small step to evaluate to the art of painting. He was very much fascinated by the technical part of painting, which later on was very useful for his passion of experiment and the painting classes he was going to give.
His creativity and design was noticed, this resulted in the confidence of several customers, which led to new plans and ideas that had to be elaborated.
Pieter is as a painter autodidact.
